    The upcoming Portaphile Shohin!

    Why is this thread in the full size headphone amp forum? Hopefully a moderator can move it to the portable amplifier forum or we can get this one closed and start a new one in the correct sub forum.  Also, hopefully some other folks will chime in on the new Shohin.  I agree, there's lots of...

    Sorry, that's the upgrade price if you buy an amp and add the MUSES01 option, not available separately. And yes, its real from a reputable supplier.

    Portaphile Thread

    Hi Fungus, that's very odd.  The power switch completely disconnects the battery from the circuit so it shouldn't be discharging when you power it off.  If you'd like to ship it to me to get checked out, I'd be more than happy to take a look at it.  Contact me via PM or email me through the...

    Sorry, I thought I responded to all my emails.  Try again and I will keep an eye out for it...   Edit: I just checked and I think I may know who you are. (TF matches an email address I received on Monday)  I just resent the email I sent earlier.  Please check your spam folder if you didn't get it.

    Officially there's a two year parts and labor warranty, you just cover the shipping.  Unofficially I will still fix it as long as I'm alive and you cover the shipping!  Shoot me a PM with the buyer's name and we can discuss it there.  Thanks!

    XM6 + OPA627?

    Quote:   Actually, the extra buffers help with low impedance headphones where more current is needed, not high impedance headphones (ie orthos).  The amp in that review has two buffers per channel, not three as you noted.  Although, the amp in that review does have three active channels>...

    Quote: Thanks!  The DD9 was one of my favorites but unfortunately was one of the units that was stolen when my home was burglarized.   I still have the D25S.  There was a company (Silicon Salvage?) on Ebay about 6 years ago selling new old stock D25S for about 30 bucks a piece.  I...

    Portaphile 627 Review

    Yes, the top of the board is pretty vacant which can be little misleading.  There are 13 IC's on the bottom of the board including three OPA627's and six BUF634's and all of the audio section thin film SMD resistors.  Hopefully someone can post a pic of the bottom of the board.

    You may need to reach a minimum post count before you're allowed to sell anything.

    Portaphile amp reborn!!

    Oh, and current amplifiers come standard with a blue LED as opposed to the switched LED (Red/green) that was available on the early versions of the 627.

    Portaphile amp reborn!!

    Hi Eric, the dual turn on is a byproduct of the voltage boosting circuit where the capacitors need to charge before the booster will kick on.  The amp will sometimes turn on on the first "click" of the power switch but usually requires you to turn on - turn off - then turn on again to get it going.

    Tokyo Headphone Festival presented by FUJIYA AVIC, May 12, 2012 (Pictorial)

    I think someone posted above this item is an external capacitance for DC coupling.  The Portaphile Maxxed amp used here doesn't have any caps in the signal path to block DC.
